The Photographic Angle (TPA) is a charitable organisation set up to promote the education of the public in the art and science of photography. We stage exhibitions that are free to enter and that travel across the UK transforming otherwise empty spaces into photographic galleries. Exhibitions comprise large scale photographs together with technical data, information about the photographic theme, boards containing inspirational quotes and boards containing hints and tips on photography. Professional, student and amateur photographers submit their work for possible inclusion in one of our travelling exhibitions, which are curated by our Head of Design. The work that we do offers the public a chance to explore this fascinating medium which can be art, a profession, or simply a pastime.

Competition - A Lapse in Time

We would like you to draw on your creativity and produce an image which has evidence of using time lapse photography. The subject can be anything you choose, but as we are creating our family-friendly catalogues for our touring exhibitions from these competitions, we would ask that you bear that in mind before submission.

You can use a variety of skills when producing your images: overlapping images so that one element changes each time, using a slow shutter speed or by thinking outside the box and creating an image that shows the passing of time in one shot such as rings in a tree trunk, the aging of a wooden boat and there are many more ideas.

We hope you enjoy this process, that you maybe learn a new skill through the process and we look forward to seeing the images that you produce.

This competition will close for entries on 31st October 2019 at midnight (GMT)

Our submission process has changed

Anyone who has submitted work to be included in one of our catalogues in the past, would have done this via a submissions page link. However, due to an overwhelming and fantastic response to our competitions, TPA have decided to curate its catalogues from the best of our competition entrants. The quality of work submitted to competitions over the years has been outstanding hence the decision to merge the two.

In short, anyone interested in having their work displayed at our venues should enter our competitions instead. The favourites will be contacted in due course throughout the year as and when a new catalogue print is scheduled. Please view our competitions page for further details.

All Exhibitions are free to enter!

This is just a little reminder that all of our photography exhibitions are free to have a look around. We welcome group visits from schools, colleges and universities and will do whatever we can, to ensure that students gain the most from their experience.
